  1. I can't see the usual "So how do we win?" section - a bad omen perhaps? From what you've said above it looks like it could be an important/tough night for Bakinson, or whoever is sat in front of the back 3. Hopefully they're all well disciplined and don't let themselves get pulled around too much by the "bird box" and are clear on their responsibilities. From memory we've had a couple of occasions where good central runs by the opposition have got a yard head start on us as someone from the back 3 realises it's their responsibility to track them - or tracks the wrong one and leaves a
  2. I thought it was 60:40 in our favour at half time. We were more consistently on top, but Bournemouth had a good spell and always threatened on the break. Our wing backs were totally pinned back and couldn't get in the game. Second half they changed things, and I don't mean this as a negative against Holden but that's what good managers will do. I think Dean took too long to react, and when he did it was probably the wrong call, and perhaps too late. They'd worked us out, we were tiring, and they were well on top. Overall a decent performance though, good to see O'Dowda play well as I

  4. I thought so too, seeing it back https://streamja.com/NNMme
  5. Wait so two years ago the founder of Papa Johns used a racial slur, resigned because of it, and now that means the EFL shouldn't accept their money? What a bizarre take.
  6. I'm probably in a minority but I'd still play Weimann. I really rate him and think he's an excellent player at this level. It's Paterson I'm not sure about - when it clicks it's great, but when it doesn't he offers little and you don't know if it'll be 1 game or 10 games until it does again. His highs are really high, but his lows are pretty low. If we're sticking with the 3-5-2 (and assuming the injuries stay the same) for now I'd keep Bakinson and Weimann in, and swap Pato for Massengo personally - including giving him license to play further forward. COD has been here for 4 y
  7. Yeah that's how I feel too. Even though Pato and Weimann have done pretty well this season so far, I still didn't really feel "Wow, they've really made their position their own" or felt like they'd be playing there for the season, either individually or together - even taking into account the amount of games we have in a short period.
  8. It's a difficult one, something definitely went wrong (which you could argue it always does, as @Davefevs was saying.) Here's our defence as their player receives the ball: And here they are as the through ball is played: For me, it should be Kalas closing him down, and Vyner staying on his man. At least, I don't think we should have so many players being taken completely out the game with a fairly simple ball like that.
  9. COD is a strange one for me - every time I see him I'm expecting to learn something about him, what he's like, what kind of player he is, what his strengths are. It's almost like he's a new signing and I still don't know much about him. I then have to remind myself he's 25, been here 4 years and made 120 or so appearances for us. He's just... meh to me. It sounds mean, but I just can't think of anything exceptional, or even really good about him - but also nothing really poor. Some players like that I really rate, and I think every team needs a few, but again for some reason he doesn't ma

  11. All very well saying "our young centre backs", but as Dave pointed out in the opening post - Swansea have two 20 year old centre backs in their team. There's a difference between age, quality, and experience.
  12. If we're dropping Rowe and Hunt, I think it's a good decision to have Brunt in. That back line (bar Kalas) needs some experience around it which he gives them.
